The 2017 Hampton 650 Pilothouse is one of Hampton Yacht Group’s most touted luxury motoryacht designs, and it’s not hard to understand why. With tons of space, a sleek modern look, and an emphasis on cruising in style, the 650 Pilothouse has plenty to offer.
The features of the exterior are a good place to start, with a covered flybridge, covered cockpit table with transom seating near the aft swim step, wide sidedecks for safe walking, and cushioned foredeck lounge space. The flybridge dinette and generous seating arrangement will likely be the heart of the party on nice days. An adjustable table, helm bench, jump seat, wet bar, refrigerator, and BBQ area are featured on the flybridge. The deck, deckhouse, and flybridge are cored with high strength Divinycell.
A large set of NanaWall folding glass doors act as a gateway between the aft cockpit and the cabin. The palatial interior has all the comforts of home, with a huge salon with furnishings and entertainment center that houses a retractable 42-inch flat screen TV with a Bose surround sound system. A short set of steps forward lead up to the full galley and pilothouse, as well as more seating. Premium appliances are complemented by the owner’s choice of Corian or granite counterops and other quality fixtures.
The pilothouse features two Pompanette Platinum Series helm chairs with stainless steel pedestals. For navigation electronics, the Garmin 7600 Series is standard and inclues radar, chart plotter, touch screen monitors, autopilot, GPS, two VHF radios, AIS, and magnetic compass. In short, the skipper shouldn’t be in want.
Farther forward, a set of steps lead down to the three spacious staterooms and three enclosed heads. The wall-to-wall master suite is simply massive with an island-style super berth with en suite head (complete with walk-in shower stall). The VIP berth also has an island-style berth. Built-in dressers, nightstands, and vanity spaces are featured in each of the three staterooms.
As far as power is concerned, the 650 Pilothouse is driven by two 1,000-horsepower Caterpillar C-12.9 direct drive inboard diesel engines. The engine room is quite large, with standing headroom for good access points. There are four stations with electronic controls aboard for skippering flexibility. Two Northern Lights generators with a sound shield should give ample power for a full crew while underway.
